Russell Westbrook designs collection for TUMI
Russell Westbrook keeps proving time and again that a professional athlete can have it all in Oklahoma City.
The ever-stylish OKC Thunder point guard and NBA MVP has designed a limited-edition collection for TUMI, a travel and lifestyle brand. Using TUMI’s existing collection as inspiration, Westbrook and the design team conceived a six-piece collection of high-performance ballistic nylon in red camouflage featuring black leather accents throughout the assortment.
Westbrook, never one to shy away from bold fashion, knew he wanted to blend TUMI’s functionality and innovation with his trendsetting style.
"I've always enjoyed the process of transforming an idea through the design process, and the creative team at TUMI really executed my vision,” Westbrook said. “I'm proud to share the functional and stylistic collection we've created together with people all over the world.”
The TUMI x Westbrook collection includes an international carry-on, double expansion travel satchel, both the Morrison and Warren Backpacks, jetsetter tote, hanging travel kit and the Westbrook dangler. Each piece features Westbrook’s personal mantra, “Why Not?”
Prices range from $55 to $795. The collection is sold at TUMI stores and TUMI.com.
Westbrook is a success on the court as well as off. He is the first athlete to collaborate with Barney's New York, held the title of creative director for True Religion, is a Jordan Brand athlete and innovative collaborator with global leading brands including TUMI, Byredo and Samsung.
Last month, Westbrook published his first book, “Russell Westbrook: Style Drivers.”
